No matter how devastating an event, I truly believe that for every door that closes...a new one opens. You just have to be willing to see it and open it.

Thanks for sharing your insight Ray, that really helps. I, too, need to post a "starting" picture. You are doing great with your goals.

My hubby and I have just celebrated our 51th wedding anniversary, can't believe we've been married that long! We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren and live in Tallahassee, Florida.

I found that once I got to where I wanted to be, I seemed to forget where I was going! I also had to re-think my strategies. I now use visual aids like posters, fridge notes like "Don't forget the salad"... and "Use Portion Control" I also had to remind myself to do things like when to exercise and and how much. I am a very visual person so I need to be reminded what to do! I finally got to the point where I was used to doing what I needed to do (It took over 2 years) but now I can function in the new lifestyle without thinking too much about it... But, I still have my visual clues! They help quite a bit! I also have my starting picture in my workout space to remind me where I was and some updated pictures to remind me how far I've come!

Ray, I agree with Krys, you are a wonderful writer and so gifted in knowing just what to say. I think part of my problem is thinking that I will never get to where I want to be with my weight, choosing healthy etc. as in the past, I've always gained it back with more! I will be "rethinking" my thinking!!!

This is true for the journey to get to our goal or even maintaining our goal once we get there. But I've found out in life, there's always something else to be achieved once you reach your goal, and there's always work to be done to maintain your achievement.

Thanks for this reminder.

Are Your Wishes Coming True?


Are you wishing on a star only to find out someone else got to it first? Have you closed your eyes tightly and waved your magic wand only to find you've used a wand that doesn't work? A wand that doesn't live up to your expectations? How about that incantation that you say hoping you'll experience that "Hollywood" POOF!!! Lets be realistic here... Your wishes won't come true unless you work at them! That's right no Al Lah Peanut butter sandwiches or open sesame incantation, wand waving or any other magic Hocus Pokus is going to work unless we decide that we are going to work! but for my question are your wishes coming true... they could! they should and they will if you will do this one thing.

Remember...you are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. Lets take a look at the problem. The problem seems to be the mindset isn't quite right yet! You're not thinking about how to get to where you want to be... you're thinking about the here and now! Don't get me wrong... this is the right place to start but you have to be thinking about your goals and what steps you have to take to make it there.

Again...this is the right place to start but you have to be thinking about your goals and what steps you have to take to make it there. You can't think success with a cookie, pastry, soda pop, chips, dips, chocolate etc always getting in your way! You can't make your wish come true when you refuse to exercise or at least get out and move around a bit. (This could include bike riding, tennis, running, jogging, walking, hiking, climbing trees playing with your kids, running through the sprinkler...) The activities are endless!

The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it. By taking one small step at a time, and trying your best to stay moving one step closer to your goals your wishes... and your dreams will come true! Ask yourself... What is stopping me from losing the weight and getting to my goal weight? Remember...If you have the desire, you have the power to attain it.

You can have anything you want in life if you will stay focused on what's needed to get to the next step...! Your dreams will come true if you focus your energies towards the completion of your goals

Jimminy Cricket sang:"when you wish upon a star your dreams come true" I truly believe that!
It's time to make YOU the star and make your dreams come true!

You know you can do it! Don't let anything hold you back! You deserve it!
Go get it! Your new lifestyle is waiting for you! Make a wish on You ... the Star! Your wish will come true!

Until next time...

Ray

*Your dreams can come true if you pursue them*
